‘Ghostbusters’ stars promote remake despite being most disliked on YouTube

Lady Ghostbusters join Graham Norton/Ian West.

Lady Ghostbusters have work cut out.

Mass Appeal Wire Reports

LONDON — They’re burdened with the most disliked trailer in YouTube history, but that didn’t stop the paranormal-fighting quartet of Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon from promoting their new female-led “Ghostbusters” movie on the Graham Norton Show on Thursday. Directed by Paul Feig, the reboot (30 years later) is scheduled to premiere July 15th. But if YouTube opinions are an indication of what’s to come, Ghostbusters 2016 will be lucky to break even at the box office.

So why the hate? For starters, the trailer wasn’t put together all that well and it’s done very little to inspire confidence in the finished product. Secondly, a lot of people are simply turned off by Feig’s decision to cast four women in ghostbusting roles.

And third, Jones’ ignorant African-American character has been under assault since it was learned she’s the only member of the group who’s not a scientist. So, do you plan on purchasing a ticket on July 15?

Did Feig make a mistake with the remake?

  1. Probably biggest bomb of the summer. Oh, well. Don’t mess with the classics.

    The new Ghostbusters movie looks over 10 years out of date. The comedy, style and look of the movie looks like it came out in 2003. The new Ghostbusters could have been so much better and followed in the footsteps of modern movie blockbusters like Jurassic World and Star Wars in that it could have been a direct sequel picking up events years later. But it’s trash and I’m not surprised the majority of men and women hate the new movie. It looks pathetic.

  4. I like these women,they’re great actresses and very funny. It’s a damn shame they got thrown into what looks to be a train wreck of a movie.

  5. Oh ladies, so much unwarranted hate being thrown at you it’s ridiculous. Don’t mind the salty comments. You’re all hilarious and incredibly talented. Much love to you all! <3

  6. Kate McKinnon is so hot! I love her smile and her sense of humor, as well…..but still, I will never watch this Ghostbusters atrocity.

  7. Personally I don’t care about Ghostbusters, even the original. Came out before I was born so I don’t have nostalgia goggles but I did see the movie and liked it. As for the remake, I also don’t care because Hollywood only seems to do remakes and sequels that you just get jaded at some point.
